An oil furnace (hot air or hot water) also has ongoing electrical power consumption such as a fan motor or water pump motor, an oil burner with continuous ignition and oil pump. So to say that a pellet stove consumes wattage, implying that an oil fired system does not, is being disingenuous. In fact a 1/4 HP oil burner fan consumes 600 watts continuously. Also pellet combustion is way below the EPA acceptable pollution standard,

In Colorado, beatles killed nearly the entire forest. In Northern Colorado is a pellet factory that provides work for an entire town. They are using the dead trees from the beatle kill, producing energy for personnel, providing work for families, while cleaning the forest for small trees to grow faster. Pellet stoves and pellets is a win win situation. + pellet stoves burn cleaner than regular burning stoves and make a lot less mess in your home.

That'd be a "double G" there, Skippy.

It helps to be error free when insulting people. Kinda helps with the whole 'bolstering my case' thing.

These pellet stoves have a 600 watt igniter element always white hot to keep the pellets burning. So letís see: 600 watts running 24hrs/7day will heat a large room very comfortably. So it would be cheaper just to plug in a heater element and save the trees which gave their lives to be pellets.
Nice try Wood Eye the ignitor only stays on for ten or 15 minutes, its on a timer. The cost is very nominal and if you want you can disconnect the ignitor and light it like you do your o'l wood stove
